Weekend Journal XXIII :: Party like it's 1980

To pretend I wasn't To celebrate turning thirty, Lauren helped me host an icecream sundae party which was full of sugar-induced joy and a revelling in all things eighties. Lauren did an amazing job organising trivia and Pictionary and celebrity heads, which featured such characters as Ronald Reagan, Michael Jackson, and E.T. There was a lot of synthesiser music, and a heavy focus on reminiscences of childhood television programs, of which Astro Boy, Rainbow Brite, and Bananaman were favourites. It was RAD.

Bethany & Jessica & Samantha -- it's an EOS 1000D, and his name is Clive Staples.

Amanda -- thanks! I'm continuing to practice :).

Katie -- right on both counts: amazing family and amazing gift!

Rachael -- there will absolutely be more pictures! The question should really be: when will Danielle hold back from posting pictures? ;)

Abbie -- thank you so much! I have a lot to learn, but I'm having fun experimenting.

Meaghan -- some amazing chick I know sent me flowers and I keep taking pictures of them...

Julia -- thank you! and yes, new cameras = so much fun!


  1. Ah, there would be the infamous breakfast ice-cream! It looks like it was a spectacularly fun party.

  2. I love that you had a 1980's birthday theme as you were born in that year ;)

    So your camera is a 1000EOS but what brand exactly? Love the name!

    Loved the photos; you're so sweet to share them with us! And Lauren is sweet to get the party going for you!

  3. Yay for Canon!

    Looks like a fun celebration. :) Happy birthday again.

  4. That photo of me with the computer is atrocious! I thought your new camera was supposed to make people look good :)

    It was such a fun party! You need to turn thirty again so we can have another one :)

  5. Looks like a fun night and you look GORGEOUS!!! Can't wait to see more pics from the new camera :) Love you heaps and happy birthday again.
    Ohhh I just had a memory of celebrating your birthday one time when you were in WA. I remember pretty purple flowers on the table and those amazing white chocolate and raspberry friands that were so amazing that I had them as my wedding cake!!
    *sigh* I miss you.

  6. What a fab idea! sounds like a blast. Glad you had fun x

  7. You're better at admitting your age than my sister. ;-) We threw a luau party for her, but I like the 80s theme party idea. Looks like a lot of fun!
